Programme Nelson is a project designed to transform how the Royal Navy gains insights from its data.
The team, including experts from BAE Systems, has brought together skills from multiple disciplines ranging from data engineers, testers, dev ops engineers, and security practitioners, to delivery management, infrastructure experts, and scrum masters.
Security is at the heart of this project. The team is developing an automated security testing approach, in order to ensure that software could be built and deployed quickly, allowing for rapid transformation in a highly secure environment.
